Cabo Flats, West Palm Beach, FL Report #198

Our last meal in West Palm Beach, Florida.  After great pizza last night at City Pizza, we decided on Mexican food tonight.  Pretty disappointing.  The atmosphere and extensive bar menu, along with the Margarita towers, gave me the impression this was more of a drinking place than an eating place.  The food backed that up.… Continue reading Cabo Flats, West Palm Beach, FL Report #198

2 Amigos Mexican Buffet, Kenner, LA Report #196

If you want high quality Tex Mex food, DO NOT come here!  As a kid I used to love a place called Pancho’s Mexican Buffet.  In fact, I think it was the first time I experienced an “all you can eat” buffet in my life!  There are no more Pancho’s in the New Orleans area,… Continue reading 2 Amigos Mexican Buffet, Kenner, LA Report #196

Los Jefes, Metairie, LA Report #173

  The Super Bowl is the day after tomorrow.  Being a native New Orleanian and diehard Saints fan, I’m still depressed.  If you don’t know why, what rock have you been under?  It was just the worst thing not only to happen in NFL history, but in WORLD history! Anyway, being depressed or not I… Continue reading Los Jefes, Metairie, LA Report #173

La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

  My favorite Mexican Restaurant on the Westbank is El Paso (Report #9).   I passed this place a thousand times and thought about trying it out, and tonight I finally did. Like any other Mexican place they start you out with chips and salsa.  The chips were very crisp and fresh, and the salsa… Continue reading La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

El Patron Mexican Grill & Cantina, Gretna, LA Report #131

  When I moved to the Westbank about 21 years ago, El Paso (Report #9), soon became my favorite place for Tex-Mex cuisine.  For awhile now I’ve been hearing El Patron was very good so I figured I’d give it a try. Pretty little place, with a nice outdoor dining area with ceiling fans blazing… Continue reading El Patron Mexican Grill & Cantina, Gretna, LA Report #131

Los Panchos Mexican Food, Gretna, LA Report #93

  In honor of Cinco De Mayo I had to eat some Tex-Mex food today!  My favorite place for that type of cuisine is El Paso (Report #9).  But on Cinco De Mayo, an illegal alien would have a better chance of getting into Trump Tower than I would have getting into that place.  It’s… Continue reading Los Panchos Mexican Food, Gretna, LA Report #93

El Mesquite Grill, Gretna, LA Report #60

    I’ve been to this place twice before.  Once maybe 11 years ago and then again maybe 10 years ago.  That last visit we made the mistake of going there on Mardi Gras night.  If you’re in the New Orleans metro area you NEVER go out to eat on Mardi Gras night.  The cooks,… Continue reading El Mesquite Grill, Gretna, LA Report #60
